Sons of IoT: Bikers hack Jeeps in auto theft spree


>> The DoJ believes that, armed with the duplicate key, a thief popped the hood of the car to disable most of the alarm system and open the door.

1. Really? If the alarm system wiring / fuse box is easily accessible through a popped hood that is a serious design flaw.

2. Why would you even need to bother? If you legitimately open the door by mechanically unlocking the door lock the alarm should not go off. If it did it would be another design flaw and defy logic.

Are Jeep vehicles really wired that idiotically?
